Total Body Water Dynamics Estimated with Bioelectrical Impedance Vector Analysis and B-Type Natriuretic Peptide After Exposure to Hypobaric Hypoxia: A Field Study
The relationship between total body water (TBW) dynamics and N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP), a stable metabolite of B-type natriuretic peptide, during acute high altitude exposure is not known. To ...
Burial duration: depth and air pocket explain avalanche survival patterns in Austria and Switzerland
AIM: To calculate the first Austrian avalanche survival curve and update a Swiss survival curve to explore survival patterns in the Alps. METHODS: Avalanche accidents occurring between 2005/06 and 2012/13 in Austria and ...
Effects of Stomach Inflation on Cardiopulmonary Function and Survival During Hemorrhagic Shock: A Randomized, Controlled, Porcine Study
BACKGROUND: Ventilation of an unprotected airway may result in stomach inflation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of clinically realistic stomach inflation on cardiopulmonary function during hemorrhagic ...
Monitoring of brain oxygenation during hypothermic CPR - A prospective porcine study
BACKGROUND AND AIM: Limited data are available concerning the impact of CPR interventions on cerebral oxygenation during hypothermic cardiac arrest. We therefore studied cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP), brain tissue ...
